Manama: Al Muharraq claim the season opener Bahrain Super Cup after edging Al Busaiteen 2-1 in the match played at the Khalifa Sports City Stadium on Tuesday.
Hussein Ali Ahmed and Hamad Abdulmanem Saleh scored a goal apiece for the winning side while Issa Muthanna grabbed one for Al Busaiteen.
Busaiteen are the current league champions while Muharraq, who finished runners-up in the 2012-13 campaign, had won the Bahrain King’s Cup back in April.
The Bahrain Premier League starts on Friday with Muharraq taking on Malkiya at home and Busaiteen entertaining Sitra on the same day.
